Penn State Alumni and Students Fight Cancer with Zumba

Penn State Worthington Scranton alumni and students will hold their third annual ZumbaTHON dance fundraiser on Thursday, Dec. 5, from 5 to 7 pm in the campus Multipurpose Building (gym). All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Penn State University IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON), a 46-hour dance marathon fundraiser held at Penn State in February, which raises money for The Four Diamonds Fund at Hershey Medical Center and children fighting pediatric cancer.

ZumbaTHON is open to the public with a requested $5.00 donation. Guests can come and dance anytime between 5 and 7 pm. There will be four Zumba instructors, each presenting a 25 minute routine. There will be raffles, the Nittany Lion and announcement of this year's campus THON team who will be participating in Penn State's annual dance marathon at University Park. The event is being hosted by the Penn State Worthington Scranton Alumni Society and the student Blue & White Society.
